tum tums [ male announcer ] tums smoothies. >>> good morning. welcome back to "early start." christine romans is fact-checking the points made about the economy in last night's debate. >> you are starting with issue number one, jobs. >> the president most recently has said 7.8% unemployment is good for the president, but last night mitt romney was very clear the depths of the job crisis is much worse than the 7.8% number suggests. this is the claim from mitt romney. listen. >> we have fewer people working today than we had when the president took office. if the unemployment rate was 7.8% when he took office, it's 7.8% now. but if you calculated that unemployment rate taking back the people who dropped out of the workforce, it would be 10.7%. >> so let's look at the first part of the claim. there are fewer people working today than in january of 2009. my answer to this is maybe because there's two ways you can calculate the bureau of labor statistics data without preliminary revisions mitt romney is right. governor romney is right. you have 61,000 fewer people working today than when th
